[aprssig] Yet another th-d7 thread

What we heard out of Dayton seems to indicate that there is a replacement 
planned, but they don't have the go-ahead to work on it.  That means time 
for development and time for construction.

The new Yaesu is unproven and won't be available until late July at the 
earliest.  I don't think the Bluetooth options will be worth it, and I 
wanted a radio for my wife that is close to the display on the D700A she is 
familiar with.

 We picked up two of the D7A(g) radios at AES out of Las Vegas.  They are 
out there but they will be getting harder to find now.
